Florence in the footsteps of the most influential families


A journey back in time to get to know the city through the main events and places that have defined its history

This tour offers the possibility to experience the Tuscan capital from a different point of view, the historical one. Through the most important events and by retracing the history of the city's most influential families, we will really get to know Florence.

We will begin our journey with the history of the Medici dynasty, from the moment they arrived in Florence until their disappearance. We will get to know their noble residence, Palazzo della Signoria, and discover the treasures and secrets it holds.

We will then uncover some of the enemies of the Medici such as the Strozzi and Pitti families, their powers and the relationships between them. Finally we will compare their Renaissance palaces with the typical rusticated stone.
